Male Fertility Acupuncture

Male fertility has emerged as a major problem in modern medicine. Research shows that in the past 50 years sperm count and quality have declined across the world. Increasingly common, male infertility has also been found to be the problem in 40-50% of couples who are having difficulty conceiving.

Acupuncture For Male InfertilityJust as there are many potential causes of male infertility, there are many possible solutions; acupuncture is one of these. Practitioners of Chinese medicine have long engaged in specialised treatment for male fertility problems, and have been using acupuncture for thousands of years.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

When properly and professionally administered, acupuncture can potentially lift sperm count and increase production of quality sperm leading to higher rates of successful conception. Additional benefits from acupuncture treatment can include an increase in libido and improvement of overall health.

How does it Work?

Acupuncture helps to boost fertility in three major ways, these include:

Reducing Stress
As a key determinant in the fertility of both men and women, stress can disrupt the balance between the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and the reproductive organs. When this balance is disrupted sperm motility and production are affected. Stimulating parts of the body with acupuncture can alter disruptive hormones and reduce stress in the body.

Increasing Blood Flow
Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, improving their function. Blood transports oxygen and nutrients throughout your body so your cells can function, increasing blood flow improves both cell reproduction and health.

Improving Endocrine System Function
The endocrine system is responsible for hormone function in the body and plays a major role in the reproductive organs. Many factors can deplete the endocrine system’s function which weakens your body and makes you more susceptible to disease. By stimulating the correct meridians of your body, a trained acupuncturist can optimise endocrine function, restoring health, vitality, and sexual potency.
